“The healing and restorative power of you and this class is fabulous, Deb; it is truly an anchor of my week!” Z.B.
Vajra Yoga integrates principles and practices of mindfulness into the practice of hatha yoga. By consciously working with the breath, poses, and what arises on the mat, we become more connected and grounded to our true experience in the present moment. While developing an attunement with our bodies, integrated with mindfulness, we naturally deepen our capacities to relax, allow, connect, and feel restored.
If you are seeking a practice that nurtures your whole being, come try a class.

This is an ongoing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group that meets on Wednesdays from 11:00 - 12:30pm, led by Adrienne Slusky, LCMHC and Kristen Johanson, LCMHC. This group spends six weeks studying and practicing each DBT module or skill set. The four DBT modules emphasize skill building in the following areas: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. DBT can be helpful in addressing coping mechanisms that are no longer working for us. We often develop these coping mechanisms as a way to respond to painful events from our pasts. Unfortunately, the very skills that may have helped us survive and combat stressors at one moment in time are either not effective anymore or are creating difficulties in our lives. The purpose of DBT is to teach new skills or behaviors that can be applied to current stressors to ultimately help us feel better and to cope more effectively. Each group will include a mindfulness exercise, general discussion, a presentation of a DBT skill, and participant examples of practical skill application for their everyday lives.
The Group Schedule is as Follows:
Module I: Mindfulness (11/5, 11/12, 11/19, 11/26, 12/3, 12/10) CLOSED
